Wonderful Milford
, Jul 2021
Long day but a great one. Great commentary from our driver Gabe, with a lovely friendly manor and sense of humour. Cruise was marvellous, we got to see the waterfalls, seals and the entrance to the sound from the Tasmine. Wonderful day, we will do it again on another visit. Thankyou
Awful food on board the ship
, Mar 2020
Good tour, but the food was diabolical. Most of the crew were very helpful, one rather sarcastic. Not my favourite tour 😣
A long but fab day out
, Mar 2020
A long but very enjoyable day thanks to Milford Sound Select. The company kindly agreed to pick us up on on the main road near our apartment a few kilometres from Queenstown. The driver was very friendly and most informative throughout
Priceless view
, Mar 2020
The cruise was amazing, views will take your breath away . The bus ride was long but you get to see the Fiord National park, mountains, lakes and sheep and deer farms that are also amazing and make it more interesting .
Beautiful, but over priced and under delivered
, Mar 2020
Milford Sound was lovely and our driver was fantastic. However, we signed up for a Luxury cruise and were supposed to be on a small bus with window seats for each person. Instead we were on a huge bus and crammed on to the same boats as everyone else. We felt we definitely overpaid for the trip. With the Milford Sound road washed out and buses only traveling three times a day in convoy, really compare prices before you go.

First, things run on New Zealand time here. Don't be worried if the bus doesn't show up promptly- it is on its way and the driver will pick you up. The service was fantastic. There was a mix up with our reservation and the driver got it quickly resolved. Once in route the driver made a few unexpected stops for short walks and pictures. Once we arrived at the sound this company reved the whole upper deck of the boat for our group. Again, very nice. Overall the whole day was well planned.

Guide was friendly and knowledgeable, providing lots of information along the way. Roads aren’t easy to navigate, so he certainly kept us safe! The call time was 7 am, so don’t fret if you’re not a morning person - the pick up was a bit delay. Pulling out of Queenstown closer to 7:30. Wonderful experience!
Marvelous Milford
, Feb 2020
Our bus driver, BaaBaa, was a great storyteller. Since he was from the area, he knew quite a bit about the history, biology and geology of the area. The folks on the boat were equally informative and got you up close to marine animals and many waterfalls. We were quite lucky to be able to go out into the Tasman Sea to have a view that the early explorers would have had. The weather was perfect. It’s a long drive from Queenstown, but well worth it. Stunning!
Disappointment all round but no fault of the company
, Feb 2020
Trip cancelled because extreme weather had blocked road to Milford. A great shame but early notification allowed me to organise something else

Outstanding scenery
, Jan 2020
We would highly recommend this trip to Milford Sound and Cruise. Our driver (from Asia sorry didn’t catch his name) was superb. He was very knowledgeable about the route to Milford Sound. He was a very safe driver and knew when to concentrate on his driving. The picnic lunch provided on the boat was adequate for us. The scenery was simply outstanding.
